Uncle Charlie was my favorite uncle. He's my godfather. My grandfather was a grade-A hood, hustling, pimping women, abusive. My mother got out, but Uncle Charlie never did. My mother made sure I had an education. I went to art school. In 1981, I started realizing that my uncle was an interesting person to take pictures of, and it became my family album. Charlie is fifty-one years old now and his life is a mess. He blames his kids, he blames his ex-wife, he blames my mother?he thinks he is the ultimate victim. I know enough about his life to know how he got there, but emotionally I can't cut him any slack. I know it's because he had an abusive childhood, but that doesn't give you the right to f**k up your kids. Still, you know, I feel for him. He'll always be my Uncle Charlie.
